Clash of Clans is not closing down on February 29

By Alan Ng - Jan 25, 2016

We noticed that there had been a rumor going around, which circulated on the Clash of Clans forums and claiming that Clash of Clans is closing down on February 29 2016.

We can confirm however that it is completely fake. Clash of Clans is not shutting down on February 29 as it has now been confirmed that rumor was designed as an elaborate hoax.

You can see the image in question below, which made a lot of players confused as you can imagine. The perpetrator even went to the lengths of impersonating forum moderator Anoushka.


It turns out though that some people just have too much time on their hands and Supercell has no intention of ending Clash of Clans any time soon.

It’s worth pointing out that we are in the middle of Sneak Peek teases for the Clash of Clans Treasury, Star Bonus and Loot Cart update so why would the game stop?

    LOL… It seems that alot of people couldn’t care less if CoC shut down. Many even welcome it. But even if it were true, would Supercell assume we would simply flock to the new game? Hopefully at least some of us learned that Supercell is not a company to trust. Look how they’re dealing with the last disaster. Apparently, Supercell has a term for the MILLIONS who have been disappointed with the December update. They call them “Grumblers”. Thank you Supercell.

    When I saw the post, I was relieved that the game will end because some of my friends are addicted to it and they do not have time with their social life anymore, they just spent most of their time playing the game, even when it is time to eat! I hope, Supercell will end this game. They can create a new game, but, see to it that no relationships will be affected.
